5:02pm
we asked if any other woman was pregnant. they said no. but they were yul young. police in fair max county are spending more time in shopping centers. >> thank you, john. we have a developing story in texas now. police arrested an awol muslim soldier accused of plotting a terror attack on or near fort hood. they arrested nazr abdo yesterday. abdo was grants add conscientious objectsor status this year after he says that his muslim beliefs kept him fromfighting. he bought some ammunitions. the clerk became alarmed when

5:06pm
republicans are joining the speaker's side this evening but he could not tell us categorically today if he actually has the votes he needs to pass. boehner's plan cuds spenting without cutting taxes but only raises the debt ceiling for about six months. even though the speaker's bill might pass the house, democratic senate leaders say it will meet a dead end. the majority of the senators signed a letter promising to vote against the speaker's bill this evening if they receive it. today, both sides continue to insist that their side was right. the bill was not perfect. i never said it was perfect. nobody in my caucus believes it is perfect but what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis. how we go forward in a way that honors original purpose to reduce the deficit. but not in a way that comes together to destroy the middle

5:08pm
england patriots and possibly become a problem for bill bill check. they will get a lot less drama here at training camp and that's the biggest bonus of all. the bottom line, albert haynesworth no longer here after signing the record deal in 2009, it has been nothing but dra ma'am he played in only 20 games for the redskins, recording just 6 1/2 sacs and everybody remembers the failed conditioning test at last year's training camp. and just when you thought it could not get worse, he was also suspended the final games of the season. he pocketed over $35 million. yes, that's brutal. on to the other team distraction, donovan mcnabb, looks like that saga is over as well. he is headed to the minnesota vikings in exchange for two draft picks. it seems a foregone conclusion that mcnabb's time in d.c. was gone because he was due a $10 million roster bonus if he was on the opening day roster in
5:09pm
september. mcnabb threw a career high 15 interceptions in 13 games last year in a season where he was benched twice. the first one coming on halloween. we talked to a pair of guys in the locker room. we'll fill you in on those guys. any big names with whom the redskins are consideringparting ways? >> they have released seven players. the two biggest names. it's going to be tough. two guys were really great in the locker room and go-to guys. it will be tough to fill those shoes. i also want to let you know if you wanted to have an albert haynesworth jersey, 9.95. go get it. >> that's what i always wanted.

5:47pm
my point is as we progress through the day, the dew point is going to go down. last week, the humidity did not go down as it got hotter. that's the forecast in a nutshell. >> got it? >> 10-4. >> you know, we had that nice blue sky, has been fairly clear. a lot more moisture in the atmosphere today. and we have not been able to reach up into the up early levels of the atmosphere and bring down drier air so it's stayed humid all day. this is 11 straight days, today, 11 straight days of temperatures, 90 degrees or higher. believe it or not, for the month, we are already talking way more than 11 straight day. we had 22 straight days so far this month, 90 degrees or higher. and two of those days have been over 100. it's been very, very hot this
5:48pm
month and it will go down as a record july, no doubt about that. the heat advisory has been bothed. up to 110 degrees. of course, the majority of the real high heat index value, 1110, maybe more than that will be down around fredericksburg. clouds this evening, we should stay primarily dry it's going to stay muggy. gaithersburg, again, another cool reading in the evening. down to 84. at least that's what the thermometer is reading 91 degrees for manassas. fredericksburg is 95. check out the heat index value. we are sitting at 98. 103 for fredericksburg. winchester is 101. you get the idea.
5:49pm
hot and muggy. 105 degrees. st. louis is 100. you see that big bright pinkish color that's all arcing in our direction? tomorrow, it will be here. we are going to be sitting where st. louis is. complex of thunderstorms coming down from the north and northwest. it looks like you see the last few frames right here, the thunderstorms firing up in western pa, it looks like these should die down as they make it in our direction. if its hold together, we may have a few showers. this is tropical storm don looking kind of rag tag, not really getting a lot stronger today, even though it is a little pit stronger. the current analysis from the hurricane center up to 45 mile- per-hour winds. movement to the northwest. it's moving pretty quickly, too, at about 15 to 16 miles
5:50pm
per hour. notice how it comes in over texas, right through the corpus christi area or southern section of the texas coast line. this will actually be good for texas if it does not come in as a hurricane, if it does not strengthen because texas needs a lot of rain and they're going to get some from this as don moves southern texas and maybe arcs back up and brings the rain to the drought-stricken area of texas as well. don may not be a bad thing is what i'm trying to say, as it comes into texas. hot at 8:00 a.m., 82. 95 by noon. by late in the afternoon, not going to be as bad as it could be because there is going to be a little dry air aloft that mixes it on down for us and helps us out a little bit in the afternoon but still going to be real, real muggy and the heat intexas is going to be 103 to 107. south of town, even higher than
5:51pm
that. you should know how to stay cool after that. take a look at this wild scene outside of a movie premiere in china town in los angeles. when the fire department announced that the movie was ka capacity, some started throwing bottles. police fired back using bean bags. we are talking about hot topics here. we have sarah frazier. we have so much to get to. let's get right to it starting with pippa's cute little derrihre. a lot of people noticed it during the wetting and now people want the same thing. >> it is the hottest plastic surgery. >> that is ridiculous. >> used to be j-lo and now it's

5:53pm
i'll put that in my category. at least i realize i'm high maintenance, right? >> that's half the problem. >> i'll remember that. >> thank you, sarah frazier. let's talk about these ads banned in the u.k. involving julia roberts. lancome, did you see them? >> lancome's defense is this is, you are aspiring to have beautiful skin but she does not look anything like that in life. >> but, sarah, really, i mean, i don't know. sean and i were talking about this earlier. that's what they do to these ads. we see this all the time. but they are banning this. >> do you think they feel pressure to go and buy more. >> it's unrealistic. you never are going to achieve this skin even if you go and spend $500 and you can easily do what. >> the point behind the ban is saying that they are misleading, too. >> yes. >> and this is christie turlington who does not look like christie turlington.
